Aha! I knew it! I knew you would get into the demon rum!

Sinc, actually, I amazed myself at how much rum I could consume and not get even remotely drunk. I think it was all the moving around, such as being in the ocean, walking along the beach, swimming in the pool, etc. I don't normally drink much, and never drink if I know I have to drive that day. However, since I was one of the few who tipped the bartender well, my wife and I got strong drinks. I brought back some Cuban rum just in case I go through withdrawal, but I have not opened it yet. We shall see.

Which rum did you prefer, the darker or the lighter version?

My daughter brought me back a bottle of each and I prefer the lighter of the two. That is odd in that I like dark rums like Lemon Hart and Lamb's Navy in this country.

Morning all. Welcome back Marc! Things are a little crazy around our house right now, so I might need to borrow a couple of doxies to keep things under control.

The new little guy seems to think that when it is dark and quiet out is when he is supposed to be awake, so there have been a few long nights. And, while our daughter loves her new brother, and wants to help and be near him all the time, she is showing a little jealousy through tamtrums over things that normally aren't any issue to her (once when trying to change her diaper and once when she was supposed to go to bed.) Normally she doesn't throw tantrums, just cries for a few minutes and then gets distracted. These tantrums are a little more trying as they involved screaming, crying, spitting, throwing things and hitting and went on for over an hour each. You think all the energy she put into it would tire her out or at least make her lose her voice so it would be quieter, but that just doesn't seem to be the case.

Thanks for the welcome, bhil. Doxies are natural tranqualizers, especially for children. As well, we certainly have enough to go around.

Don, I prefer the aged light rum. Here in St.John's, I like Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum, which is an amber color.

Marc, I too keep a bottle of Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum in the motor home. One never knows when some malady will strike and necessitate it's immediate application.

The best laid plans of mice and men...

Well, I did get back to bed for 20 minutes, but other than that, the plans for the day have been shot all to hell. And I'm off again in about 15 mintues for a meeting that should keep me busy most of the night. Yay! ;/

Sean, that sounds like so much fun. Really. Urk. My sympathies. Hopefully both wee ones will settle in to the new reality sooner, rather than later.

Don, I even warm up the spiced run in the winter time. I find it very relaxing, especially when sitting next to my wood stove with a doxie or two in my lap.
